Why you really need to change your view on space

The old heliocentric model makes us perceive space, stars, planets and other objects as they were revolving around one static star. Also this suggests the wrong idea of a static universe or at least as static as it gets to be observable during a human lifetime.

The Sun is actually moving through space and revolving around the center of our galaxy at about 828,000 km/h (almost 20.000.000 km/day, 7.253.280,000 in one year). Our rock is revolving around the sun at about 107.000 km/h on its own.

This said, get a more complete view of this whole shebang. Check the video below.
